With a system("..", ".."); call does it return the output? I thaught it just returned a 1 or a 0 based on if it worked. Can you just put read(filename, $var, size) ? Without opening?

    Yes, my fsck-up. I forgot what you were doing for a minute when I saw backticks :) You may want to use a pipe, or look at perlsec to see how to safely emulate backticks with fork() and exec(). Now matter how you do it, good to look into all the other possibilities :)
